Wyatt Scott Helton
April 7, 2005 - August 19, 2022
Wyatt Scott Helton, age 17 and a resident of Franklinton, passed away Friday August 19, 2022 at Lakeview Regional Medical Center. He attended school in Franklinton and later graduated from the Louisiana Youth Challenge Program and was excited to soon begin the Job Challenge Program. Wyatt loved being in the outdoors more than anything. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and mud-riding on his ATV. Wyatt liked to spend time on the rivers canoeing and tubing or just relaxing on the sandbars. He loved camping out with his friends, hanging around the campfire telling stories and having a good time. Wyatt always liked to help other people and in doing so, at the end of his own life, he was an organ donor so that people he never met could receive the ultimate gift. Wyatt will be forever missed by his family and friends.
